Anritsu introduces metrology-grade W1 coaxial components that are designed and manufactured to deliver precision performance and repeatability for high-frequency measurements. Comprised of a W1 connectorized power splitter, power divider, directional coupler and attenuators, the components promise to remove measurement complexity, reduce measurement setup time, and improve accuracy. The components are not band limited and support a frequency range from DC to 110 GHz, eliminating the need to de-embed adapters between native coaxial interface types, thereby removing the need for calibrations between coax to waveguide.
The W1 components include a three-resistor power divider, two-resistor power splitter and a set of attenuators that provide coverage from DC to 110 GHz, along with a 20-110 GHz directional coupler with typical performance down to 110 MHz. Because the components are designed with W1 connectors (1.0 mm compatible) intended for broadband scalability and mode-free performance to 110 GHz, measurement accuracy is improved for better device under test characterization. They are designed to perform with excellent VSWR and low insertion loss. For more info, connect with Anritsu.
